Building Design

B5

Use Durable Materials and Well-Crafter Details

INTENT

Building materials should be selected for their appropriateness to place, a minimal ecological footprint, and long-term aesthetic value. Thoughtful composition and detailing will express a level of quality and a sense of scale inherent in excellent architectural design.


Guidelines
 

a.    Choose durable, low-impact materials that are appropriate for the climate and seasonal shifts in weather conditions


b.    Select materials that are locally sourced and supportive of Bainbridge Island's economy where possible


c.    Express the architectural concept of the building and provide a sense of human scale through thoughtful detailing
